.. where Ikea goes to playground

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

over my summer break, i found lots of fun things. for exempel, i found this gr8 place called the playground! it is gr8 fun! It is mostly for kids, but giraffes are also allowed, yes! (but no dogs, i’m afraid). There is lots of fun things you can do in a playground, but since it was a bit wet for making sandcastles (jei) here’s something i tried: swinging! here’s me on a swing:

giraffes are not allowed on swings on their own many times, so here’s me with my friend Pipi. we managed just fine, if u ask me! just a little bit tight, but lots of fun!
but i have to say, the most fun thing that i found on this playground is this: the SLIDE!

the SLIDE is for sliding. you climb up from one side and SLIDE down from the other – as simple as that! and SLIDEs can be quite LOOOO…

…OOOOOooooonng, like this one!! and also like giraffes’ necks, they are long too! so they can be a little scary. but fear not, you can not fall anywhere, only slide!

so, the most important thing is to sit still, breathe in-and-out few times and then just SLIDE!! just like me below! jei, SLIDING is lots of fun!! have u been sliding recently? let me know!! in fact, i thing i will actually go and practice my SLIDE now because, apparently, Lotte found out about this SLIDE. So now we will be having Kadriorg Olympic Sliding Games, it seems!! hehe, sounds gr8 fun, if u ask me :) so, have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea finds sandcastles in Võru

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what! i have been travelling to south-Estonia, jei! because it is warm in south, it seems to me. so, as i was walking in the park in Võru i saw some really fun things made from sand on the beach! apparently, they are called sandcastles! so, i took some fotografs:

a rectangular (Leenu tells me that it is called rectangular if it looks like a big box, just like the one that Angel likes to hide in) house with Estonian flag on top. it looks like the presidents castle in my home park, Kadriorg, but im not sure..

a round house. it looks pretty much like a tortoise to me, but the sign said it is a house. i personally would not like to live in a tortoise myself. but you can’t live in a house made of sand anyway, so i think it is okay..

it is Munamäe torn, hehe. i only know it because i have been to Munamäe tower. and the Big Egg Hill. but it is not as steep as this one, so u can go up easily. well, maybe not easily because it is quite hard if u run. but u don’t have to run, there are stairs too.

and this big house that looks like bunch of Angry Birds buried in the sand, hehe! my friend Sipsik tells me it is the opera house of Sydney, in Australia. well, i could not tell. there are no giraffes in Australia to ask from, i’m afraid. so i just have to believe her. anyways, the sandcastles are quite a bit fun, because they are smaller than real castles. and they are made out of sand, which is nice because u can do it on the beach, while sunbathing. or someone else can make them, while you are sunbathing, like happened to me. so, it is lots of fun!! i might even try to make some sandcastles myself next time, hehe! have u made any this summer? let me know and have fun! cu l8r!
